Linchpin Events uses either images uploaded by users or images from a royalty-free database like

Integrate images

Click on the Search button in the event creation wizard. Type in the word you are looking for and click Search. Select an image that fits. Once you select an image, it is cropped automatically and applied to your event.

Tip #1

The search bar responds to the name of the event. If your event is named "Christmas party", the search will display fitting images. Use the search bar below the images to refine your search (for example when you don't want to see any Christmas themed images, but only images of Santa Clause).

Tip #2

The three images you see are not as perfect as they could be? Click Search again. Three new images will load. Repeat until you find the perfect image for your event.

Upload your own image

You can upload your own cover image for your event.

In the event creation wizard, click on Upload. Select the file you wish to upload. The image will load. 

Now, crop the image. Select the image section you want to be displayed as the event image. Click on the Apply button.


You can reposition the cropping tool anytime. Click on Apply again to apply the new image section as a cover image.

Make sure your image is at least 450 x 170 px
